From transport to slaughter.
They were forced to travel in horrendous conditions; in trucks that hadn’t been cleaned and in wet, freezing cold weather. They were then forced to enter a pen too small for their numbers, where they were left to wait for their deaths. They could smell the blood and death in the air, and some bit on the bars of their enclosure, either in an attempt to escape, or out of extreme stress. After waiting terrified in this pen, they were then forced into the slaughterhouse one by one with the use of rattle paddles and electric prods. Each bovine had to watch his friend die before him. At this slaughterhouse, 50% of the bovines are slaughtered in a halal fashion, meaning that they are not stunned before their throats are slit. Their deaths are not quick or painless, they all have a desire to live and they fight for their lives. Please help end such suffering by choosing a vegan lifestyle.

here’s an idea: don’t argue with poc or lgbt+ peeps about how something shouldn’t be offensive to them if you’re cis/het/white bc all the knowledge you may have gathered online cannot and does not give you an inside scoop to the oppression they face daily. by arguing with them all you’re doing is invalidating their feelings and being an ass
euo:Images like this were too controversial for an Oakland gallery.
Images that were part of an exhibit of art by Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip. The images were supposed to be shown at the Museum of Children’s Art in Oakland, but the show, entitled A Child’s View from Gaza, was cancelled on September 8.
The Berkeley-based Middle East Children’s Alliance stated in a news release that “there was a concerted effort by pro-Israel organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area to pressure the museum to reverse its decision to display Palestinian children’s art.”
Kim Kelley-Wagner has two daughters who were adopted from China. In everyday life, they have been subjected to horrid statements from people - to their faces, to their mother as they stood by her, etc. In this photo collection, shared on her blog, Kim and her daughters (Lily and Meika) put these ignorant cruelties front and center.

"I have tried to explain to my daughters that people do not say these things to be mean, they say them out of ignorance, which is why I am sharing some of them. Words are powerful, they can become tools or weapons, choose to use them wisely."
i’m honestly deeply ashamed because of the harshness of our world
